Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for today 6/23: MLB and NBA Draft
We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which are from PointsBet Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook. We will discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Bryce Harper 1+ RBI and the Philadelphia Phillies to win – Boosted from +250 to +305 with PointsBet Sportsbook
This prop will need Bryce Harper to record 1+ RBI and the Philadelphia Phillies to beat the San Diego Padres tonight. Harper is batting .326 on the season and has 48 RBIs, which is tied for 10th in the league. He has 16 RBIs in June, an average of 1 RBI per game for the month. Our experts would lean towards the Padres to win tonight due to the fact that they have the advantage on the mound and the Phillies’ bullpen can be a liability. However, Philadelphia’s offense has carried them this month, so even if their pitching is lacking, their offense could easily pick up the slack. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Keegan Murray to be 5th overall pick – Boosted from +120 to +160 with PointsBet Sportsbook
For this prop, we will need Keegan Murray to be the 5th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. The Detroit Pistons own the 5th pick in the draft. They have already traded away Jerami Grant to the Portland Trail Blazers, which will open up a ton of minutes at the small/power forward spot and allow Keegan Murray to step right into a starting role as a rookie.
With Cade Cunningham already in place for Detroit as the distributor and a young core piece in the backcourt, Murray can be a 3-and-D type on the wing. Murray took a big leap this past season as he became Iowa’s No. 1 scoring option as a sophomore. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

2+ hits recorded in the 1st inning in Astros at Yankees & Phillies at Padres – Boosted from +230 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook
For this prop, we will need there to be at least 2 hits recorded in the 1st inning in the Houston Astros vs New York Yankees and Philadelphia Philliesvs San Diego Padres games. The Astros and Yankees have some of the best lineups in baseball, so regardless who is starting this game, we should expect some early hits.
The same goes for the Phillies and Padres. Especially with Ranger Suarez making the start for the Phillies, the Padres should certainly have some early success. We only really need 1 hit from all these teams in the 1st inning and with the top of the lineups being so strong, this looks to be a play worth backing.
